What to Consider About Memory Care in Saint Lucie County

Saint Lucie County is on the western coast of the Florida panhandle, with a county seat of Ft. Pierce. The county has a population of 313,506, including 23.6 percent, or about 78,000 residents, who are age 65 or older and in the primary age bracket for Alzheimer's disease.

The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration is in charge of licensing and regulating assisted living facilities that supervise seniors with dementia as Extended Congregate Care facilities, or ECCs. In Saint Lucie County, Fort Pierce and Port St. Lucie each have one ECC.

  • Saint Lucie County never receives snow and gets 51 inches of rainfall yearly, compared to the U.S. average of 39 inches. It has 238 sunny days per year, while an average U.S. city has 205. Seniors with joint pain or respiratory problems can appreciate the temperate climate, where winter lows fall to a balmy 52 degrees, and summer highs reach 91. Saint Lucie County earned 86 out of 100 in Sperling's Comfort Index.
  • Crime is rated on a scale with one being the safest area and 100 representing the most dangerous. The national average for violent crime is 31.1, and Saint Lucie County's ranking is 14 points lower at 17. Property crime in the U.S. averages 38.1, as compared to 29.2 in Saint Lucie County. Seniors with dementia can benefit from the extra security an ECC provides, such as self-locking doors, cameras and guards.
  • Florida does not impose a state income tax and has other tax laws that favor seniors, especially those on a fixed income. The money that families might have used for taxes can be spent on daily living expenses and continued care for seniors in an ECC.
  • Cost of living estimates are based on a national median of 100. Saint Lucie County's overall cost of living is 107.1, and healthcare, in particular, is 101, so expenses may not rise dramatically after placing a relative in an ECC. Families should keep that in mind when searching for a facility in Saint Lucie County.
